Try going to the control panel>performance and maintenance>disk cleanup. After running cleanup run the defrag. You can also cleanup your internet browser by deleting cookies, temp internet files, & browsing history. See if this helps speed up the system. Hope this helps & please rate this solution fixya. Thanks.

Sir i want to check our lenovo 3000 that it contains correct RAM,HDD and everything in it. and another problem is that i have os win 7 proffesional so that i am not able to install c language in it.


Yes it looks like it, to run the C language you will need to dual boot Windows 7 and Windows XP. Or install only WIndows XP. Another idea is to install a Virtual Windows XP Operating system. Therefore XP running in a Window of Windows 7. Called virtualization.
However virtualization is not possible on this model of Intel CPU.

Take care!

My machine seems to slow down alot what can I do to fix this?


Delete the temporary files form the computer. To do so Click Start-> Run-> type %temp%-> hit enter. Select everything and delete it.

Same way delete the temporary files from windows well. Click My computer-> Local Disk-> Windows-> temp

Also delete prefatch under windows. ClickMy computer-> Local Disk-> Windows-> prefatch.

Try to restart your computer everyday and not just log it off.

Try and see if this works.

I have Intel 810e PIII 1 GHz 512 Mb Ram 20 GB HDD. OS Win ME I want to add secondary HDD. Which one should I preferr 80GB / 120GB / 160GB. and will install new OS say Win XP or linux in Secondary Hdd....


160gb - but ensure the bios is up to date and check the motherboard manual as that will or should explain about maximum capacity of hard drives but am sure it should be fine.

If it is not and does not detect all of it you can partition the partitions into smaller amounts ie 80 gb partitions each ?

Computer saying error loading operating system


You can configure your boot setup from your bios screen (for dell, either F11 or F12) then set up your optical drive as your 1st priority then, save settings. After that, you need to insert your windows XP cd in order for it to boot.

inform me of what happened after you have done this.

Computer won't load Windows


Hello,
1. What the motherboard you had been using
2. Whats the HDD

Check that your motherboard supports the higher HDD
Upto 80GB HDD Windows can load the XP with servicepack 1
But after 80GB HDD supports the WIN XP with service pack 2 CD only.  Try to install with the winxp having above sp1.

Let me know if your problem is solved and rate me as FIXYA!

How to move contents from computer default hard drive to external iOmega hard drive, to make computer faster


There is a program on the xp cd called Fastwiz- it will save all your profile data for you. Unfortunately it's REALLY slow and you would be better doing it by hand. If you want to do it by hand you will need to copy all the data in the Documents and settings folder for all the profiles, plus any other data that you will need to reload the drivers. I recommend saving the e-machines drivers directory.
Wiping and reloading the operating system is the best way to resolve problems with a slow system, and a faster bigger newer hard drive is a good idea too. E-machines have a tendency to just die after a year- be aware that you get what you pay for. Also adding more ram to this system will help too.
